18-Time Major Winner Jack Nicklaus Presents Coquitlam, BC's A.J. Ewart With The 2022 Jack Nicklaus Award

It’s not easy being a golf parent.
But, there are times when advice from another source can be very helpful. Especially when that source is Jack Nicklaus. In 2009 I was working on a golf construction project in Bangalore, India where Jack Nicklaus and his staff also happened to be in the early stages of designing a golf course.
Prior to arriving in India, the 12-man Nicklaus contingent made design stops in Japan and Korea and would be in India for only 24 hours. They toured the Nandi Hills site, Nicklaus made a number of design changes and then attended a dinner party with ten of the richest men in India.
The next morning, while the group was finishing breakfast and preparing to head off to the airport, I had the opportunity to ask Jack a few questions.
